I love all waxes from Candle Science

I bought the yellow beeswax to make lotion bars and salves. This is perfect for the reason I purchased it. I love the pastille form it comes in. I don't sense any odor as other reviewers have said. Get one pound if you intend to make and use lotion bars and salves. I am coming back to get the white beeswax too.

I hoping the bad reviews were wrong

All the bad reviews below are correct—no maybes. This wax smells horrid. I was hoping to mask it with the fragrance oil, but no use.
It’s awful, like really awful. It was really disappointing

I love it

I actually loved the outcome of my candles. I bought what i thought was a lb of beeswax but after measuring to see how many 4oz tin candles i would get i noticed it wasn’t exactly a lb. other than that i will buy again!!!!

My shop does not open until September and I'm still in the testing phase. However, this is lovely beeswax. Excellent fragrance, clean pastels too! I did not find ANY contamination in CSs pastels. I also appreciate the pastels form! Very easy to weigh and melts evenly. I know beeswax is expensive, but generally I only add a small amt to my proprietary container candle wax blends because if you add TOO much, it will crack near the wick-(especially if you use wooden wicks).
Candle Science has their own recommendations for how much beeswax to use in your wax blends, but I have found a little under 1 ounce :: to 11oz of other waxes seems to do well. Anything above that ratio (and obviously depending on what your "other" waxes are), it will crack down the center.
Beeswax is a hard wax so its AMAZING for adding an extra hardness to soft waxes like coconut, apricot & soy etc. The only thing you have to watch out for is, if you don't temper beeswax while its cooling (heating your jars up first, making sure the ambient room temp is around 90 degrees or so, it shrinks on itself very fast, which causes the cracking. Tip for candle makers here, (some of my researched proprietary info ;)- 1.) I use seedling heat mats for cooling my candles. It helps to regulate the cooling and HELPS with sinkholes and/or cracks. 2.) Regular yellow beeswax in small amts adds DEPTH to your candle fragrance & HARDNESS to soft waxes. Thanks CS! I'll be back! :D

Authentic aroma

I order beeswax from local farmers here in the Pacific Northwest and I just thought I’d try this because I like it in pallet form when I opened it up it had that familiar set it smells like beeswax from beekeepers it may not be as strong of an aroma but I do like this particular beeswax I’ll buy it again

I ordered this to try out since the price per pound is very reasonable. I can get it cheaper from a local supplier but I have to buy a pallet and I'm not ready for that just yet. This beeswax does smell like beeswax, although the scent is light. It has the correct yellow color. It is a little dry and brittle and not as "waxy" as other much higher quality beeswax I've purchased. HOWEVER that quality beeswax was nearly twice the cost per pound. I am currently playing with this as an additive with soy wax and I think it will work very well to raise the melting point of a soy wax candle and add a pleasant aroma to go with other fragrance oils as well. We'll see but this is not bad beeswax and if you are thinking of getting a pound to try out I would recommend.

Works for me

I was a bit surprised at the number of complaints about the smell, to me it has always had a light honey aroma. I'm one who will recycle leftover wax from old candles, and have found that this mixes well--not only for good burn time but in adding a nice undertone to other fragrances.

I opened up the package expecting a lovely aromatic scent and got quite the opposite. It smelled like strong pesticides. Will be shopping elsewhere for beeswax next time.
